Our Story

How it all started...

Just as every family has their unique history, built on the accumulation of generational stories, so does a church. The origins of RiverLife Church date back over 100 years ago, born out of a pioneering and sacrificial commitment to the work of Christ in our community.

We want to share our story with you. 

Expanding the vision...

Today, RiverLife is dedicated to reaching people for Christ across the street and around the world. We seek to learn God's Word through Bible-centered, Spirit-led discipleship. Our church family strives to connect with God and with people through worship, fellowship and serving. We believe RiverLife is a place were you can grow in your relationship with God, connect with a church family, and reach others by living out your God-given purpose.

Where we are headed...

As a vibrant, growing church in the Bradenton/Sarasota area, we recognize that our congregational story is not complete. We believe the best chapters of the RiverLife Story are yet to be written. This is where you come in. We are always looking to connect with new people who will join us as we serve Jesus Christ and share His message with our community and the world. 

Be a part of our story...

Join us every Sunday as we gather to worship together at 8:30 am, 10 am, and 11:30 am.
